Dr Anderson is an excellent spine surgeon. I have a difficult spinal issue which has been extremely hard to fix, yet Dr. Anderson has done and continues to do everything he can to resolve my condition. He has an excellent bedside manner, makes himself available when needed, and he doesn't give up. I would recommend him to anyone having to contemplate spinal surgery.

Dr Anderson actually listens to the patient, does an exam, reviews the medical record and takes the time to tell you the truth and explain everything. He never appears rushed and concentrates solely on you, the patient. Most important, his surgical skills are stellar. I was fortunate to be a candidate for a micro-surgery technique in the lumbar area. I had an excellent result - very happily pain free with very little down time.

Dr, Anderson saved my life. If not for him I would be in a wheelchair. He performed two of my back surgeries. The last one in 2014. I have referred many patients to him. All with good outcomes. Thank you Dr. Anderson

Dr. Andersen was extremely knowledgeable, professional and caring. He is an outstanding doctor! He has offered me a potential surgical solution to my lower back pain that has been with me for close to 50 years.

Dr. Anderson was so easy to work with and always took his time to answer all of my questions. I had been in pain for so long and really never thought I was going to feel better. Dr. Anderson performed an ALIF fusion on my L5/S1, and from the day after the surgery I knew the original back pain was gone! Dr. Anderson is my hero!!

I am thankful I researched spinal specialists for a second opinion and found Dr. Anderson at Rothman Institute. Dr. Anderson was brutally honest with us. He informed my father that he needed surgery ASAP, was a high risk candidate (old heart attach and recent stroke) with less than 50% chance of regaining any motor function or bowel / bladder control. He had surgery the following day. The morning after surgery he was able to move both legs again. Blessed he is on the road to recovery!

I can not begin to tell you how much I was impressed by Dr.Anderson and his team. It was one if not the best experience I have had with a doctor. He is smart, professional and caring. He spent a lot of time with me explaining everything carefully and completely with a genuine concern for my problem. He put me at ease about my potential surgery and made me confident that my problems could be corrected. If surgery is needed on my back, he will be the one to do it.

He has performed surgery twice on me within the last 7 years. Both times the results were amazing. I can’t speak highly enough of him.
